WINNER - A Bookshelf Monstrosity! Congrats!

I’m going to hold a quick little giveaway for Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. If you’d like a new paperback copy of the book, just comment on this post with an email address or another way to reach you, and I’ll pick a winner tomorrow at 3pm PST. Open to residents of the US & Canada.

After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the days, then the hours, then the seconds until his release tick away, he can feel a storm building. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr. Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.

Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But they are being pursued by someone with whom Shadow must make his peace...

Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Neil Gaiman's epic new novel sees him on the road to finding the soul of America.

This book won all sorts of awards, and though I only say I ‘like’ it, rather than ‘love’ it, it’s definitely a masterpiece of dark imagining. For fans of myths, dark fantasy, horror, and the quirky and bizarre.

Ooh, after reading "Good Omens" and "Neverwhere" recently, this was on my to do list. This seems a bit different (from what I know of it) than the others, but I definitely want to give it a try!
